Japanese golfer donates ALL earnings to earthquake relief

Golfer Ryo Ishikawa

Golfer Ryo Ishikawa says he's giving all of his tournament earnings this year to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in his home country Japan.

The 19-year-old made more than £1.2 million last year, so if he plays like he did then he could end up donating a massive amount of cash.

He's also pledged £750 for each birdie he gets.

Ishikawa is a really successful golfer and he won his first pro tournament as a 15-year-old amateur.
